The Steep Hill Vermont Lab is an independent small-business 100% owned and backed by Vermonters, operating under license from Steep Hill, the world’s leading cannabis science and technology company.


The venture was the first testing laboratory to receive a pre-qualification license from the State of Vermont’s Cannabis Control Board in May 2022. Plans are underway to open a state-of-the-art testing facility with the latest technical equipment from Shimadzu, PerkinElmer, and other world-class suppliers.

The team is working hard to have everything in place in order to open up for business by late summer. Until then, please feel free to reach out to us by email and follow us on social media.
